This is a small, intimate restaurant a 10 minute walk from the Loire. The staff are welcoming and helpful and the food is excellent and reasonably priced for such quality. My starter of fricassee of tuna with coriander gazpacho was both flavoursome and inventive, as was the tartare of salmon with passion fruit. We both enjoyed the magret de canard... More

An excellent restaurant, this was one of three we booked for dinner during our three nights in Saumur. Food was excellent and service was very good.

We rarely go to a restaurant twice during a 3-day stay, but Restaurant L’Aromate was superb. We were told that the couple who owns it once had a one star Michelin restaurant in Vichy, but were not interested in the time and effort required to play the rating game, so they closed and reopened in Saumur where the chef was...

Visited here twice when we were staying in Saumur last September on both occasions we had lunch from the set menu which was very good value for money and the service was delightful, what was noticeable was that most of the other diners were French which speak volumes in itself. If you are Saumur do make the effort and talk... More

I visited this restaurant about three years ago and was very impressed back then. One of the signs of a good restaurant, in France, is its popularity by the locals at lunchtime, and the three times I have been here, it has been very busy with French businessmen/ businesswomen. They don't go over the top cramming as many as they... More

Last night we had the most wonderful Reveillons (New Years Eve) dinner here. 7 delicious and beautifully presented courses with perfect service and a great atmosphere. We've eaten here before for 'normal' meals and they have all been great too.

11 of us recently enjoyed lunch here pre Xmas. We were given a private room upstairs. The food and service were excellent.

We arrived (3 of us, with a booking) at this bustling little restaurant (which had been recommended by both our hotel and a friend from Saumur), a short walk from our Hotel Londres at a busy time, and had to wait a bit for menus and service. But we really enjoyed the food (chevre chaud salad, foie gras, magret de... More

We arrived (reserved in advance) with a party of 10. They had done a special "menu" for us of around 5 courses. All was fabulous, and they even (easily) swapped out one fish dish for me with a delectable grilled veggie risotto at the very last minute. Very good reception, the service was delightful, and we all left very happy... More
